Technology and art come together in the artistic centerpiece of the new Forum development in the heart of the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus. Artist Alexander Beleschenko's stunning multi-colored printed glass design for the Forum's vast glassed-in areas was the winning entry in a competition among internationally renowned artists. 26 different colors, each representing a letter of the English alphabet to represent the concept of the university's pool of international students (drawn "from Anguilla to Zambia"), were printed according to Beleschenko's swirling tube designs. Dip-Tech digital in-glass printing with ceramic inks was the only solution capable of meeting the challenges posed by so many colors integrated in an external application. The result: vibrant, sweeping swaths of colors that grab attention both inside and outside the Forum.
